Mine after 5 minutes of tweaking the start screen on my AMD machine. Yeah, I've got the taskbar on my start screen and yes it's fully functional. ;)

 

EDIT: Did a few more minutes of tweaking.

I'm disappointed that there is no boo-berries in your wallpaper, but I like the way you managed to hack the taskbar into the start screen. :)

Music icon was updated in the app releases that coincided with the 8.1 GA update.

3x 2560x1600 screens? Impressive set-up.

The rainbow coloured desktop icons are horrid in 8.1 sadly.

It's a feature in StartIsBack. IMO, to me having the taskbar on the start screen makes the start screen fit better with the desktop.

That's cool! :)

It's a shame the software isn't free.

I just set my start screen and desktop backgrounds to be the same thing and I quite like it like that.  They flow together better that way I think even though they're separate.

True, but it's really well worth it!

Same here, but having the taskbar too is like having the icing on the cake. :p

I love that in 8.1 it doesn't make all the desktop app tiles grey. That was the worst part of the 8.0 start screen IMO.

The grey ones were horrid. Thank god for color.

Do what? The taskbar on the start screen? Its a feature in StartIsBack. Along with having the desktop background on the start screen, having the taskbar too really brings the desktop and start screen tighter together, IMO.
